Former No Limit rapper C-Murder, who is serving a life sentence at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, Louisiana, launched a hunger strike on Tuesday (January 30). He’s specifically targeting Angola Prison, Assistant Warden Barrett Boeker, Warden Darrel Vannoy, The Department of Corrections and the secretary of the DOC James LeBlanc because of the prison’s “inhumane” conditions.
In a statement obtained exclusively by AllHipHop, C-Murder, who is the brother of both Master P and Silkk the Shocker, specifically referenced Boeker who was arrested for second-degree rape in December 2016, and has received numerous complaints from prisoners due to harassment and physical harm.
“I am now on a hunger strike to fight these injustices against my peers and against myself,” he said. “Only in Angola can a warden be arrested for rape and continue to serve as an officer in this Louisiana penal system. This warden has an abundant amount of harassment, racism, and physical harm complaints against him from other inmates. We need an internal affairs investigation now.”
According to The Advocate, a grand jury refused to file official charges against Boeker despite the arrest.
In his statement, C-Murder added, “Angola is a disaster.” He also touched on the dangers of speaking out on the inhumane conditions at the prison.
“At a moment’s notice, we can die for voicing our opinion, but a voice must be heard,” he said.
C-Murder is serving the life sentence for the 2002 murder of 16-year-old Steve Thompson.
